One Direction are filming a follow-up to their hit movie This Is Us.

Speaking to Daily Star Sunday, returning director Morgan Spurlock said: ''Yes, there will be a follow-up to This Is Us.

''At this moment Ben Winston is with the band on their world tour filming what happens. He worked with me and is a great producer.''

Spurlock said that label boss Simon Cowell hopes the quintet will receive an Oscar nomination in the Best Original Song category with the new film.

''I know Simon Cowell wants the band to get awards for this and was upset when they missed out on being nominated in the music category for an Oscar on our film," he said.

''It [Best Song Ever] was a good song and I was surprised that they weren't even considered. This time he will want them to try again.''
